Yesterday Aerin, who is 205 days old, rolled and looked at me and shouted “da da da da”, which is cool as I think she’s getting the idea. I haven’t been coaching her, honestly I haven’t. I usually ask if she can say “da da” and then ask if she can say “Ma ma”.
Maggie at 233 days started shouting “da da” in a Target, so I think we’re pretty much on track for this.
I didn’t even break out Jimmy Fallon’s book “Your baby’s first word will be DADA” – I barely even refer to myself in the third person.
As if to one-up the cuteness of the day, Maggie wouldn’t really take a nap and was clunking around her bedroom. We don’t force er to stay in her room, but she generally will stick there while it’s naptime, but she must have gotten bored.
I heard a knock knock knock at the door followed by a rendition of “do you want to build a snowman” that had me laughing nearly to tears. I opened the door, she laughed, she knew that was funny and sweet.
Good play Maggie, you one-upped your sister who can’t crawl yet.
